RAF Police Association

Official Trade Mark


Last update: 14 April



The Treasurer is currently trying to balance the Association books following receipt of the 2014 subscription payments. Sadly, two years after the membership subscription was increased to 12.50, payments in the sum of 5, 6.50 and 10 are received. Where valid contact details are held emails or written statements are sent to the individuals concerned..but still the unchanged payments are received.

You are urged to check your bank statements to ensure that the appropriate subscription was paid to the Association in January this year; if it wasn't the membership status of those concerned will be LAPSED!

This is especially relevant for those 16 members with the surname of SMITH; Two are life members, five are fully subscribed but the remaining nine have either not paid a subscription or paid an amount less than the 12.50 required and one of the 10 payments just bears the reference SMITH and to date it has not been possible to identify who made this payment.

If you need to send a payment or a top-up payment to the Treasurer please make it payable to the "RAF Police Association" and send to it to him at his home address.

Issue 2 2013

August this year sees the 30th Anniversary of the formation of the Association. To assist John Walton I am trying to identify the Founder members who are still with us (as members).
Our early records are not that complete but with assistance of some of our older members I have been able to identify 13 thus far, they being:
Charlie Crossan, Brian 'Dick' Barton, Brian Burrows, Alec Beange, Alan Millership, Brian Whitaker, Ray Orgill, Alex Flavell, Dave Eldridge, John Curtis, Rowley Coultas, Jack Kemp and Steve Cattell.
If you regard yourself as a Founder member and are not on the above list please let me know. If you think that there are other omissions from the list please also let me know.
By 'Founder Member' we mean that the member concerned was either at the Meeting of August 1984 or sent their apologies.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Dear All, The Provost Marshal Group Captain Kevin Bailey, reminds us that this year in addition to the RAFPA 30th and RAFPA Standard 10th Anniversaries, it is also the 70th Anniversary of the RAF Police participation in D Day. It was not long after the start of Operation Overlord on 6 June 1944, that members of the RAF Police were operating in many parts of Europe.

It is the PM's request that at RAF Halton on 9 August, we also commemorate the actions of those RAF Police some 70 years ago. The PM hopes that as many serving RAFP as possible will join the RAFPA at Halton. More details will follow but one to mark down in your diary...!!
